  • How long have you been in the industry? I’ve been in the industry for 13 years.

  • And how long have you been with OCP? Going on 8. I was in asphalt before.

  • How long have you worked for OCP and how has your role progressed? I’ve been with OCP for going on 8 years. My work has progressed because when I came into the field, I didn’t even know what a stud was. Now I know all of my materials. But, there’s always something new. It’s one of things I enjoy about the work.

  • What brought you to the construction industry, and what made you stay? I was laid off from my previous job, then I was in asphalt. I always got laid off in the winter months. So, I got with OCP in the building trade and they got me all year working, so I’ve stayed with them.

  • How did your career in construction begin? It was hard when I first learned it with the asphalt, and then I came here. It was rough, but now I know my materials and enjoy the work.

  • What is your favorite project you’ve worked on? Avon Select Medical. It was a well run job.
